The 20th Century was the age when the TV became ubiquitous. The magic box introduced us to all manner of thrills and ills: newscasters, the Test Card, weather girls, rolling news and all those talking heads reporting ‘LIVE!’ from the scene of anything from a sneeze to a hurricane, pay-for-view, static, the remote control, aerials on rooftops, continuity announcers and in today’s gallery captions.
